I was looking for something to jot some notes in the other day, and picked up an old journal. I flipped through the pages to find a clean one, and came across this list I made last year, called 30 Things to Do Before I’m 30.
I’ll be honest, I was a bit scared to look at it, but as I read through, I realized that quite a few of the things had been done, and the ones that hadn’t, well, I didn’t actually mind that much.
Some of the things I was able to check off included:
#7 Plan and throw Adlai a sweet 1st birthday party.
#16 Visit Scarborough – where I met Simon – and see how it’s changed.
#14 Lose my Adlai weight (plus 5 pounds).
Some of the things I wasn’t able to check off included:
#17 Get more organized (yeah…about that…).
#18 Grow a kitchen herb garden.
#28 Make a house-cleaning schedule and stick to it (and about that too…).
So I’ve finished about half and, really, that’s not too bad. And, as tomorrow’s my 30th birthday, I could technically bake a cheesecake right now, and read through the Bible all night tonight, and run a 10k when I finish.
But I won’t.
Because I checked off the most important one – #13, Be a good mama. – and that’ll do me just fine.
